Paul Abbott's cop drama continues, with the Friday Street team - minus Viv - bargaining with Attah crime family boss Nora. It turns out that Nor is rather opposed to female genital mutiliation, so - at her request - the officers search out a so-called cutter suspected of performing operations across Europe. Elsewhere, Viv heads undercover despite her suspension, unearthing a lead in the search for Ronan, one of the Attahs' victims.

Preview - No Offence

With justice juggernaut Viv (Joanna Scanlan) suspended from duty after being outmanouevered by Nora Attah, the matriarch of the nototrious crime family, she risks blowing the team's case against Manni by continuing to build evidence into the Attah's complicity in the disappearance/murder of several children.
